In piercing, unprettified prose, Terese Svoboda navigates the terrain of alienation and loss. I talk like a lady who kws what she wants is how the vagrant begins her story in Trailer Girl. As she struggles to rescue what she says is a wild girl hiding in the gully, the neighbors become more certain than ever that the child is imaginary-until there's a murder. Stark and disturbing, Trailer Girl is the story of cycles of child abuse and the dream to escape them. In Psychic, a clairvoyant kws she's been hired by a murderer, in Leadership a tiny spaceship lands between a boy and his parents, in Venice, a woman performs the Heimlich maneuver on an ex-husband, then flees by gondola, and in White, a grandfather explains to his grandson how a family is like a collection of chicken parts. Frequently violent, always passionate, these often short short stories are full-strength, as strong and precise as poetry.
